On cask at the brewery. Pours a very dark color with a loose tan head. The smell is roasted malt, brown sugar, dark fruit. The taste is as it smells ending dry and roasty. Light in body with fine carbonation. Good stuff.

November 2016 - Cask handpull at Bootlegger, Wycombe. As ’Tring Mansion Mild’. Opaque black with a foamy brown head, leaving light lacing. Aroma is earthy, dark chocolate and ash. Body is light, smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is thin chocolatey malt, plummy, sugary, thin coffee with a soft finish. I quite like it – but you’ve got to approach it with the ’mild mindset’.

Cask at the Bootlegger - High Wycombe. Pours clear brown with a creamy, tan head. The nose has some toasty brown bread, faint cocoa and toffee. Light sweet flavour with more toast, earth, mild chocolate. Light bodied with fine carboantion; decent condition. Drying in the finish, with further bittersweet cocoa, light toast and roast, leathery berries. Not bad. Scopey (15427) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2016

Casl at Prince of Wales, Farnborough. 09/09/16. Little aroma to speak off. Hint of malt. Dark chestnut, almost black. Weak head, just circles inside of glass. Sweet but not overly so. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel. Slightly malty. However it had a really odd finish - leaves a salty taste in the mouth. Average at best. edsspoon (905) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2015
